Do You Suffer from Deployment Anxiety? By Necco Ceresani Whether you suffer from a diagnosed anxiety disorder or not, many of us who are responsible for deployments become uneasy when deploying code to production.

All About the Metrics: Application Metrics | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Cloud #DevOps

All About the Metrics: Part 1, Application Metrics By Christine Cignoli When we talk about today's technology environments, we're mostly talking about complexity. In the past decade or so, there have been some big changes in the way IT manages its resources and responsibilities. Along with the changes in technology (virtualization, cloud computing and others), IT now has to answer to line-of-business teams in brand-new ways. End users are savvy tech consumers now, and their expectations for technology at work are high. In this brave new IT world, there are adjustments to make. One big shift is around metrics, where people-today's end users and IT teams-and numbers collide. IT teams are trying to align with business goals at the same time they're grappling with hybrid environments, so better end-user experience and productivity are newly important goals. It's a diffe...

Docker Load Balancing in @Rancher_Labs 0.16 By @LemonJet | @CloudExpo [#DevOps]

Docker Load Balancing Now Available in Rancher 0.16 Hello, my name is Alena Prokharchyk and I am a part of the software development team at Rancher Labs. In this article I'm going to give an overview of a new feature I've been working on, which was released this week with Rancher 0.16 - a Docker Load Balancing service. One of the most frequently requested Rancher features, load balancers are used to distribute traffic between docker containers. Now Rancher users can configure, update and scale up an integrated load balancing service to meet their application needs, using either Rancher's UI or API.  To implement our load balancing functionality we decided to use HAproxy, which is deployed as a contianer, and managed by the Rancher orchestration functionality. Read original blog post here. Visit Rancher Labs at @DevOpsSummit New York With Rancher's Load Balancing cap... (more)

How Is Your Business Leveraging #DevOps? By @Monitis | @DevOpsSummit

How Is Your Business Leveraging DevOps? We’re living in exciting but demanding technological times. Big Data, Internet of Things, Apple Watch, ubiquitous computing, smart machines, robotics, and home automation . . . things that were the talk of science fiction only a few short years ago are on every CIOs wish list today. But to the point, the revolution in technology has led to major shifts in how organizations today ideate, plan, develop, and deploy software solutions. It used to be that software release cycles would take upwards of 18-24 months or more. Now, with the innovations spurred on by the consumerization of IT and heightened customer demands and business competition, companies today are hard-pressed to get applications out the door as fast as possible. DevOps is essentially a transformation in IT culture for the 21st century involving rapid service deliv... (more)
